SECULAR MUSIC GROUP
VOLUME 1
 cover
Love All Day
This is the debut record by the SECULAR MUSIC GROUP courtesy of the Chicago label Love All Day. A nice mix of late 60s/early 70s Blue Note, 60s/70s spiritual jazz & 20th Century classical minimalism. Group member Chistian Ruggiero is a successful composer for film & television so it's not surprise that there are also elements of library music & film scores by the great Quincy Jones & POPOL VUH. RECOMMENDED!

COLA
DEEP IN VIEW (BLACK-IN-RED VINYL) (2024 REPRESS)
 cover
Firetalk
Borne from the end of OUGHT, Canadian post punk trio COLA picks up where the previous band left off with tense, skeletal structure, but with a darker, sleeker motorik sensibility. Lead singer Tim Darcy's voice will be instantly familiar, and this should slide into the shelf near your OUGHT records no problem. Superb!

DIRTY THREE
LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING (RED VINYL)
 cover
Drag City
"Love Changes Everything" is the first new album from the legendary Aussie trio DIRTY THREE in 12 years. Warren, Jim & Mick have been busy during that time with many other projects. Warren with NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS & soundtrack work, Jim with XYLOURIS WHITE & many other collaborations & Mick collaborating with others as well. In many ways this record seems less arranged & more improvised than previous DIRTY THREE albums. It's all SUPER loose but it works very well. Very glad they're back. RECOMMENDED.

YOUNG, NEIL & CRAZY HORSE
EARLY DAZE (CLEAR VINYL)
 cover
Warner
Early Crazy Horse fans rejoice!! These previously unreleased recordings feature the line-up from the legendary 1970 Fillmore East concert that included Danny Whitten on guitar & some lead vocals. These takes have a really loose feel to them & some alternate arrangements. Anything that we've never heard from this legendary era would have us drooling & yes we are drooling. RECOMMENDED.

GOU, PEGGY
I HEAR YOU (BLUE VINYL) (INDIE EXCLUSIVE EDITION)
 cover
XL
South Korean DJ & model PEGGY GOU has been a star of the Berlin dance scene, having released a miniature fleet of singles and mixes (including her own DJ-Kicks mix back in 2019). "I Hear You" is her first full length, pushing headlong into her signature bubblegum deep house and earworm dance-pop melodies. Summery, bright and yet effortlessly cool, this is one of the most inviting dance records of the year that will most likely make its way onto many year-end lists including some of ours! RECOMMENDED!

SOFIA BOLT
VENDREDI MINUIT
 cover
Born Losers
This is the 2nd album by the talented Los Angeles via Paris artist Amelie Rousseaux. Jangly guitar songs with baroque pop moments. Think Velvets, GALAXIE 500, Twin Peaks roadhouse dreamy pop, Francoise Hardy, STEREOLAB & some occasional furious moments that dip into TELEVISION. This is a really deep record that reveals itself more & more with repeat listens. RECOMMENDED.

UNIFLORA
IN THE DOOR (OUT THE DOOR) B/W HELLGIRL
 cover
Charm Co-op
First vinyl release from local heatseekers UNIFLORA, whose "Plastic Sturgeon" cassette we (and you) liked. They seem kinda linked to the "Hallogallo" bag along side other favs LIFEGUARD, HORSEGIRL, etc., but I'm not 100% sure because i don't get out much. Anyway they're younger than you, they play angular post-punk better than your band, and they're part of the reason that Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson has named 2024 "The Year of Post-Punk" (This is true.) You probably already know that you like this. First release on new label/worker's cooperative CHARM CO-OP.

APHEX TWIN
DIGERIDOO (2X12" EXPANDED)
 cover
R&S
This 1992 EP has been unavailable for over 20 years & it's now been expanded for this 2024 reissue. "Didgeridoo" is regarded as one of the finest moments in Richard D. James' ridiculously stacked discography. Supposedly he wrote the track to tire people out dancing at the end of raves in Cornwall. At over 7 minutes, this heavy track actually tracked in the U.K. back then. We're really stoked to have this back in the racks again. RECOMMENDED.

MONTGOMERY, ROY
TEMPLE IV (2LP)
 cover
Kranky
First ever vinyl release for Roy Montgomery's legendary 1995 album "Temple IV." Montgomery got his start in the New Zealand band PIN GROUP who were associated with the who's who of the Kiwi sound at the time. In 1994 Roy released a record on Kranky with the band DADAMAH & soon after made his way to New York City. While there he recorded two albums including this one on a 4 track machine with a cheap guitar & a few effects pedals. Long form guitar jams with drone elements that fit in somehwere between POPOL VUH, the drony side of V.U., German legends Achim Reichel & Manuel Gottsching. This one is absolutely epic. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

FINOM
NOT GOD (RED VINYL)
 cover
Joyful Noise
FINOM or the artist(s) formerly known as OHMME return with a new album "Not God" in 2024. The extremely talented duo of Macie Stewart & Sima Cunningham are deeply entrenched in the Chicago music scene but FINOM is clearly their baby. Produced by Jeff Tweedy with his son Spencer playing drums, "Not God" perfectly displays Macie & Sima's abilities as players & songwriters. Hints of THE ROCHES, SPARKS, B-52s & even ESG. Another great one from these gifted Chicagoans.
